SentryWorld is proud to host the 71st U.S. Girls’ Junior Championship on July 22–27, 2019. The USGA chose SentryWorld as the first site in Wisconsin to host this prestigious event. Attendance is free and open to the public.SentryWorld—Wisconsin’s first destination golf course—was developed by Sentry Insurance in 1982 as part of a sports complex that includes indoor tennis courts, banquet space, and restaurants. The 7,237-yard championship golf course was designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. In 2013, Jones returned to oversee a major renovation that increased the total yardage and upgraded nearly every feature of the course, including new tee boxes to create a greater variety of shots. The project was led by on-course architects Bruce Charlton and Jay Blasi.
